I arrived to Gateway in the late evening after an evening flight. The shuttle driver drove past me twice and only called for Ramada Inn, not mentioning the 4-5 other hotels he visited. The check-in person was lovely, but the room itself wasn't totally clean. The couch in the room was stained, cheap scratchy towels and soaps, very "budget" despite... More

We spent our two final nights of our eight day stay in San Francisco. We booked our holiday last minute and scrambled for rooms.. We fell in love with the place we stayed in in Millbrae,,,,just minutes down the same road as Gateway in San Bruno, but they didn't have rooms for our last nights, since we booked so late,... More

I travel to San Francisco a lot. This inn gives me comfort and quiet and I am 15 minutes from the city. Helpful staff, affordable rates, clean rooms and plenty of space. Parking is close and safe. Many restaurants close by

Very clean and comfortable place to stay near SFO. I stay in this area several times a year and have been tired of paying premium prices for low quality hotels. Check in was easy and the room very clean, quiet and comfortable. Nice parking. I will absolutely stay here again. The breakfast is spartan, but adequate.

This was my first stay at Gateway Inn & Suites and I absolutely loved it. It was very convenient to all transportation means. The staff was very helpful and efficient. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I was able to sleep through the night peacefully. The breakfast was just enough to get you started for the day. I highly... More

My stay here was very nice and pleasant. The rooms were very clean and had the home-like environment feel. Very friendly and courteous staff. Very convenient location to travel and go sight-seeing. Near by attractions included but not limited to the BART station, San Francisco, Airport. Motel provided free transportation to the airport as well. Breakfast was okay, it can... More

Our group of three families arrived at the hotel in the wee hours of the morning due to a series of flight delays. What we found was very disappointing. After struggling to find any parking, we discovered that the young man behind the desk had resold one of our three rooms, one that had been reserved with a credit card!... More

Spartan at best with single pane windows and no insulation btw rooms made very noisy and unpleasant. The "Continental Breakfast" was so funny that it provided the only moment levity in an otherwise grim experience. It consisted of a loaf of Wonder Bread, a toaster and tower of some cereal flakes.

MY wife and I checkec in very late on the night of July 9th, 2014. The check in experience was just fine as was the room. The next morning our check out was typical and the young man who had been there all night was friendly and courtious. My problem comes with the next desk clerk that came into the... More

I chose this hotel because of the location and free parking. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the street noise didn't really bother us. I had a party of five and only two towels were provided for our double queen room. There is only one ice machine for all three floors of this hotel and it was... More
